UPDATE- I have started a new series of bloggers interviews on ScrollBucks in which I am going to ask a few questions to popular bloggers and get some blogging knowledge from them.
Today, we have Jitendra Vaswani, Digital Marketing Trainer, and SEO Consultant in India. He has been blogging since 2013 and here he will share his blogging journey with us.
I heard about Jitendra in 2015 when I was jobless and searching for online money making tips from blogging I got his blog Bloggersideas in search results. He is a very hardworking guy who believes in dreams and I love the way he works.
He has worked with many top brands like Zopper to grow their business. Also, he has published his first book Inside A hustler’s Brain.
You can visit his blog BloggersIdeas to get the blogging knowledge. Now, let’s start with the interview session.
Amit- Thank you Jitendra for taking time from your busy schedule, please tell us about yourself and your education. Also, tell us how you get into blogging?
Jitendra- I am Jitendra Vaswani founder of internet marketing blog: Bloggersideas and I started blogging in 2013 when nobody believes in my dreams. From that point, my life changed because I decided to devote my life to blogging & today I am living a laptop lifestyle traveling the world and now my goal is to build my product for the affiliate marketing industry.
I have my book “Inside A hustler’s Brain“. Through my first book “Inside A Hustler’s Brain: In Pursuit of Financial Freedom, I want to help people to take action in their life and bring change in people’s mindsets. To be an entrepreneur mindset is everything. So many people lacking mindset and they are confused with their life.
Amit- You came so far in blogging and marketing industry, When you started blogging, Did you face any challenge as a newbie blogger, and what was your first online income?
Jitendra- I did face lot of challenges when I started blogging because my life was hard because I had a small job in 2013 and my family didn’t support me in blogging they think I was a loser and I was so depressed I become loner & learned to live alone, I was working very hard on blogging 5 hours every day after coming from my job.
So you need to learn to live alone because entrepreneurship is lonely and depressing, this is a truth very few people share this online.
My first blogging income was $50 from a sponsored and then I got $600 from another sponsored post that was a big deal man.
Amit- How many blogs are you running and what is the primary income source?
Jitendra- I am running 10 blogs for now which are different verticals like health, dating, travel, Forex, Bitcoin & MMO.
These blogs require a tremendous amount of work and you need to put a lot of content as SEO requires content and Google loves to blog which has fresh content.
My primary sources of incomes-
My digital marketing agency: Digiexe.com, Bloggersideas.com for now.
I also do speaking, training & workshops across the globe and I do make good money with this extra source of income. I believe if you provide value to people you can charge for your knowledge, I charge for my experience and mistakes I made in my business, so people can avoid these mistakes.
Amit- Everyone knows that you are a successful blogger, marketer, how it feels to become a successful person?
Jitendra- I feel good and I always try to deliver my best knowledge so it can impact people’s lives and my main goal is to give people encouragement to take action in their life.
Amit- Tell us about your favorite bloggers and inspirational person.
- Neil Patel
- Rand Fishkin
- Jeff Bullas
- Grant Cardone
- Gary Vee
These guys have changed my life and I consume their content every day to stay updated in my business. You need to consume the right content in your business in order to be successful.
Amit- How big is your team?
Jitendra- I have a team of 20 people and they work on different roles like-
- Content writing
- Video Editing
- Podcast managing
- Link building
So everyone has their own set of things and I lead my team in a strong position as a leader. Because managing 20 people is not easy at all. You need to give positive energy to your team every day, sometimes their moral goes down and I need to push them a lot here so I can get the best out of my team.
Amit- Have you faced any failure in blogging? if YES, what is it?
Jitendra- Yes many failures, who don’t face failures in their business, many businesses failed many times and we learned from mistakes, I made mistake buying wrong hosting for my blog, it cost me a lot of $$$$$ and I lost my business.
I had failures in choosing the wrong business partners who cheated me and I lost so much money. But I learned one thing here, don’t stick to your failures, learn from it, and move on in your life.
Don’t try to hate people, give love & be more kind to your team, that’s my motto for success.
Amit- What are the top 3 websites you visit daily?
Jitendra- I visit many websites every day,
I check these websites for daily updates on business updates.
Amit- is blogging dead ? Whats your thought?
Jitendra- Not its not dead, it will be there forever. You need to upgrade your skills every day and apply your knowledge to your business every day, take blogging as a business.
Many people take blogging casually and they never think about monetization. Through blogging, you can make tons of money and you need to master one skill and make money with it.
With blogging, you can include videos in your text-based content & many people have now realized videos are a better way to engage your audience. Video content into blogging will make you more money and make your users happy.
Amit- What advice you would like to give to a newbie blogger who wants to make a career in blogging?
Jitendra- Start your blog and start working on it, instead of looking for shortcuts in blogging, there is no shortcut in blogging. Many people look for shortcuts in blogging which is not possible. You need to ut your real efforts and keep working. There is nothing like easy money on the internet. It’s all hard work and patience game.
Amit- Thank you Jitendra for sharing your journey and knowledge with us. This will be really helpful for newbie bloggers.
Nothing is impossible in this world. If you have a passion for doing something, then go for it, do it with dedication. People around you will start demotivating you if you start doing something new. You should focus on your goals and work for them.
Blogging is not dead, we can still start a blog and make money from it. There is no shortcut in blogging, you have to work hard to make your blog successful. Don’t copy others, write your own fresh content.
